Hi, are you using a program to effect Win 7 colours as it is picking up what ever you are using. I run in Black and after update still black. Can you check your Windows settings and or that program as Firefox natively has not changed so something is making it change.
A theme you have installed perhaps : Try : SAFE MODE
In Firefox Safe mode these changes are effective:
- all extensions are disabled (about:addons)
- default theme is used (no persona)
- userChrome.css and userContent.css are ignored (chrome folder)
- default toolbar layout is used (file: localstore-safe.rdf)
- hardware acceleration is disabled (Options > Performance > Uncheck to view)
- plugins are not affected
- preferences are not affected
TEST''''is issue still there ?
hello thanks for responding promptly! No everything in windows 7 is the same, also tried safemode and the highlighted blue is still there in menu bar. Similar to windows 7, but only appeared after recent ff update.
took a screen shot finally, hope this helps
That's a new feature in Firefox 62.
For me with Windows 7 and having the Menu Bar showing all the time, that highlight doesn't show until I hover the cursor over a menu item; it goes away off-hover and after selecting one of the menu items.
With the Menu Bar hidden and then you hit the Alt key to show the Menu Bar temporarily, the File menu is highlighted. If you hover the cursor over the Bookmarks item or any other menu item on the Menu bar the highlight appears there.
I imagine there is userChrome.css code to "hide" that highlighting; Im'm not going to look for it because I like that new feature due to the way the desktop or other open windows behind Firefox "bleed thru" the translucent Firefox Titlebar. You could ask about hiding that "highlight" here: https://www.reddit.com/r/FirefoxCSS/
yeah it doesnt need to be there honestly, quite an eye sore in my opinion. wouldnt have updated if i new that would be the case,. i;ll check that reddit link, might as well delve in to coding huh. Guess this Mozilla way of involving the user in development? Geez Lol
...due to the way the desktop or other open windows behind Firefox "bleed thru" the translucent Firefox Title Bar...
My FF Title Bar is solid in color (a darker orange). This is controlled in Windows-7:
- Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization
I invited paradroid to a screen sharing session, and I'll give an update here once we are done.
